Let Amazon pick, pack, and ship your orders

You sell it, we ship it. Amazon has one of the most advanced fulfilment networks in the world. With Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), you store your products in Amazon's fulfilment centres, and we pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products. FBA can help you scale your business and reach more customers.

SELLER SPOTLIGHT: GOAL PREP
FBA was a huge part of us choosing to go ahead with Goal Prep. We had neither the time nor space to handle all the orders and shipping, especially with a new baby.

Fast, free, and convenient delivery choices

Amazon Prime members love free two-day shipping on their Prime-eligible orders, and all Amazon.com.au customers can get free shipping on eligible orders over $39. Premium delivery options enhance customer shopping experiences and in turn, increases customer demand and loyalty.

Customers get Amazon's trusted customer service and returns

FBA leverages the Amazon customer service network stretching around the globe, managing customer inquiries, refunds, and returns for your FBA orders.
  • FBA customer support: Customers can contact our customer support via phone or email, day or night. This service is provided at no extra charge to you, with the exception of the Returns Processing Fee for select product categories. When you use FBA, your time can be spent growing your business or taking a vacation, rather than managing customer service
  • FBA returns: For orders from the Amazon.com.au website that Amazon fulfils, we will manage all customer service associated with fulfilment of your FBA products. Our Online Returns Centre provides customers with help pages and details about how to contact us in case of concerns. If the customer wants to return a product, we direct them to our convenient Online Returns Centre. Read more about FBA policies regarding Customer Returns for Orders Placed on Amazon.com.au.

It's cost-effective

Pay as you go—you are charged for storage space and the orders we fulfil. The cost of shipping is included in your fees, with no extra charge for Amazon Prime FREE Two-Day Shipping and free shipping on eligible orders. Fees for Selling on Amazon and optional services may apply.

FBA storage and fulfilment fees

Inventory storage fees

Charged for all items stored in an Amazon fulfilment centre, and based on your daily average volume of inventory measured in cubic feet. See how to determine the product size tier for your items.

Long-term storage fees

Assessed monthly for all items stored in a fulfilment centre for more than 365 days. Maintaining sound inventory health can help you avoid long-term storage fees.

Fulfilment fees

Charged per unit for picking and packing your orders, shipping and handling, customer service, and product returns. Use the FBA revenue calculator to estimate fees and see how to preview your fees.

Unplanned services fees

Charged when inventory arrives at a fulfilment centre without proper preparation or labeling, making unplanned services required. See unplanned services.

Removal order fees

You can have Amazon return or dispose of your inventory in a fulfilment centre for a per-item fee.

Returns processing fees

The FBA returns processing fee applies to customer-returned products sold on Amazon in categories for which Amazon offers free return shipping.

Referral fees

All sellers (regardless of plan type) pay a referral fee on each item sold. Items in some categories have a per-item minimum referral fee.

Learn more about the cost of FBA. Use the Fulfilment by Amazon Revenue Calculator on Seller Central to estimate your FBA fees.

FBA inventory management

Use the tools in your seller account to list products, create shipping plans, send in shipments, track and monitor your shipments, and remove inventory from Amazon fulfilment centres.

Track inventory age

Improve sell-through rates and avoid long-term storage fees. Use Inventory Age tools to understand how much inventory you’re holding, and see how long it’s been in fulfilment centres.

Fix stranded inventory

Keep your listings active by including necessary pricing and condition information and resolving errors. If your inventory is in fulfilment centres without an associated active listing, it’s not available for purchase.
